thumbnail Hello,

Youth team coach Willy Sagnol confirmed the son of the Real Madrid icon will join up with the squad next week, although he could yet play for the senior Spain side in future

Zinedine Zidane's son Enzo has accepted a call-up to the France Under-19 squad for the first time.

The 18-year-old, who is currently part of the youth team at Real Madrid, was born in France but attained Spanish citizenship in 2006 and was subsequently called up to the Spain Under-15 side in 2009.

However, the youngster has now decided to link up with les Bleus' youth set-up and will take part in a training camp in Clairefontaine next week, with the French Football Federation (FFF) confirming that he is in the squad.

"The player has decided to wear the blue shirt," coach Willy Sagnol was quoted as saying by Le Parisien. "He can still change in future but his current desire is to play for the France national team."

Zidane Jnr, who has adopted the name Enzo Fernandez, still retains the option to chose between playing for France and Spain at senior level.

He has been part of the youth system at Real Madrid since 2004, where his father currently serves as assistant coach to Carlo Ancelotti.
